My girlfriend and I will be flying into Cancun for two weeks in April 2014, second week is a friends wedding in Playa del Carmen (All inclusive resort) but the first week is for us to explore some ruins and sights etc and I am hoping to propose at some point prior to.
I'm thinking of going to Campeche and exploring from there up to Merida and back to the Cancun/Playa del Carmen area. Couple of nights in Campeche, couple of nights in Merida and maybe a couple in between. Unfortunately we won't be able to hire a car due to the license needing to be held for a minimum of 2 years (I believe?) but am happy to use the ADO and/or transfers.
I am currently looking at either
1. Hacienda Uayamon or Hacienda Puerta Campeche.
2. Then moving onto Merida at Hacienda San Jose or Hotel Hacienda Merida (http://www.hotelhaciendamerida.com/).
But not sure whether the former of the two are worth the potential taxi/bus runs to and from the towns? I'm an SPG member and really love the look of their hotels in the area they also look romantic and appear to have nice dinner options for the daunting proposal. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions/advice on this?
Alternatively I was going to book a nice hotel for a week in say Riviera Maya but thought it would be nice to see something a bit different while keeping in the area. Cost is a consideration but not necessarily a hindrance.
